  • av Rob Henderson

    In this vivid coming-of-age memoir, Rob Henderson recounts growing up in foster care, enlisting in the US Air Force, attending elite universities - and what he learnt from seeing life from both sides of the tracks.Rob Henderson was born to a drug-addicted mother and a father he never met, ultimately shuttling between ten different foster homes in California. When he was adopted into a loving family, he hoped that life would finally be stable and safe. He was wrong: tragedy, poverty and violence marked his adolescent years.An unflinching portrait of shattered families, desperation, and determination, Troubled recounts how Henderson eventually managed to find an escape route through the military, which led to an academic career at Yale and Cambridge. As he reflects on the fate of many of his friends - drugs, death, prison - Henderson never escapes the feeling of being on the outside looking in, or a sense that his academic achievements are hollow compared to the love and protection that comes from stable family life. He dissects the hypocrisies of contemporary social class and shows how the most privileged among us benefit from a set of 'luxury beliefs' that actively harm the most vulnerable.Rave Reader Reviews'Eye-opening and heart-breaking''Inspiring''Incredible''Wow''Powerful and thought-provoking'

  • av Walter Isaacson
    336 - 510,-

    From the author of Steve Jobs and other bestselling biographies, this is the astonishingly intimate story of Elon Musk, the most fascinating and controversial innovator of our era—a rule-breaking visionary who helped to lead the world into the era of electric vehicles, private space exploration, and artificial intelligence. Oh, and took over Twitter. When Elon Musk was a kid in South Africa, he was regularly beaten by bullies. One day a group pushed him down some concrete steps and kicked him until his face was a swollen ball of flesh. He was in the hospital for a week. But the physical scars were minor compared to the emotional ones inflicted by his father, an engineer, rogue, and charismatic fantasist. His father’s impact on his psyche would linger. He developed into a tough yet vulnerable man-child, prone to abrupt Jekyll-and-Hyde mood swings, with an exceedingly high tolerance for risk, a craving for drama, an epic sense of mission, and a maniacal intensity that was callous and at times destructive. At the beginning of 2022—after a year marked by SpaceX launching thirty-one satellites, Tesla selling a million cars, and him becoming the richest man on earth—Musk spoke ruefully about his compulsion to stir up dramas. “I need to shift my mindset away from being in crisis mode, which it has been for about fourteen years now, or arguably most of my life,” he said. It was a wistful comment, not a New Year’s resolution. Even as he said it, he was secretly buying up shares of Twitter, the world’s ultimate playground. Over the years, whenever he was in a dark place, his mind went back to being bullied on the playground. Now he had the chance to own the playground.For two years, Isaacson shadowed Musk, attended his meetings, walked his factories with him, and spent hours interviewing him, his family, friends, coworkers, and adversaries. The result is the revealing inside story, filled with amazing tales of triumphs and turmoil, that addresses the question: are the demons that drive Musk also what it takes to drive innovation and progress?

She didn't even know what it meant to be free.

This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.'Clear-eyed and devastating' Observer

Intresset för biografier

Sitter du också och undrar varför vi läser biografier? Biografier är en av de mest attraktiva genrerna att läsa 2021, eftersom läsarna får en ännu större inblick i huvudpersonens tidigare liv än de redan hade. Detta kan vara allt från biografier av musiker till biografier av företagsledare. På grund av teknikutvecklingen har vi idag stor tillgång till att följa andras privata och offentliga liv, medan de helt personliga frågorna förblir hållna till de nära. Genrens unika egenskaper gör det därför möjligt att följa huvudpersonen väldigt nära och få insikt och förståelse för de handlingar de gjort och vilka situationer de mött.

Det stora intresset för biografiböcker har alltså sin grund i att mottagaren kan läsa om andras upp- och nedgångar de mött i sina liv, samt vilka överväganden och spekulationer de har haft. Det är särskilt intressant eftersom det vanligtvis inte delas med omvärlden. Genrens syfte skiljer sig därför från de andra, och vänder sig ofta till en stor målgrupp, vilket har lett till den ökande utvecklingen av efterfrågan på biografier. Detta är definitivt en genre man vill läsa.
